Telluride Gallery of Fine Art: Open for Business for Winter Season

With the change of season, the times they are a changin’ too – as in a changing of the guard at the esteemed Telluride Gallery of Fine Art: Director Baerbel Hacke is now Director Emeritus. In that capacity, she will be an active consultant, but as the doors of the art space open for business for the winter 2018-2019 season, Baerbel passes along her day-to-day responsibilities for the operation to the staff she so carefully and lovingly trained.

”I have enjoyed 31 years of sharing my passion for art with you all. Thank you! I am happy to pass the gallery torch along to my admired young staff, Malarie who has been with me for 5 years; Christin for 3; Natalie and Drew for 1 year. You will be in such good hands! I’m not moving to Germany, so will see you around town.”

“The staff would like to give a huge congratulations to Director Emeritus Baerbel Hacke on her retirement. Baerbel’s passion and drive is the core of Telluride Gallery’s ethos. We the gallery staff feels so fortunate to have had Baerbel as our mentor. Her liveliness, honesty and genuine love for art is what we will carry on! We are planning a celebration for her and will keep you all updated on the details,” explains Malarie.

This winter, the Telluride Gallery, now open for business, will showcase new artwork on its walls and new jewelry in its cases. For example, visitors will be treated to photographs by Maggie Taylor from her upcoming book “Through the Looking Glass.” Those prints will be on view along with selections from Lauren Greenfield’s ‘Generation Wealth” (in case you missed that work at The Original Thinkers event in October).

The artist is in the collections of the Whitney Museum, Smithsonian, SF MOMA, MOCA LA, Hirshhorn Museum, Art institute of Chicago and many more prestigious venues.
